      Call for Fellow Nominations

      Artist Lee Weiss. Musician Ben Sidran. Neuroscientist and psychologist Richard Davidson. Poet and first Wisconsin poet laureate Ellen Kort. Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson.

      What do these Wisconsin luminaries have in common? They are all Fellows of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters--men and women of extraordinary lifetime achievements in their fields. The Wisconsin Academy is now accepting nominations for Fellows, with a deadline of February 15. Nomination guidelines and materials are available at the Wisconsin Academy website, www.wisconsinacademy.org.

      Fellows are selected for their qualities of judgment, perceptiveness, and breadth of knowledge of how literature, art and science contribute to the cultural life and welfare of our state. Their careers are marked by a high order of discovery; technological accomplishments; creative productivity in literature, poetry, or the fine or practical arts; historical analysis; legal or judicial interpretation; or philosophical thinking. They must also have had significant involvement with the state of Wisconsin , whether by working here, living here, or having their achievements affect the intellectual and/or cultural life of our state. The Fellows program represents the highest level of recognition conferred by the Wisconsin Academy . Fellows serve as advisors and contributors to Academy projects. Up to five Fellows are selected each year.

      Fellows will be announced by the end of March, with a reception to be held in Madison this summer. For more information, contact Gail Kohl, director of development, at 263-1692 ext 14, gkohl@....
